Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: SSUSA Needs to review bat rule

What is unsaid is, someone probably thought the bat was altered. Now when I was youngish and strongish, I would use an ASA bat on short fields aka Oxnard, but considering the 40's were playing on the 320 fields probably not the case.

I have no dog in this fight, but instead of tip toeing around and calling somebody a crybaby, just say (insert name here) did the above and my name is (insert name here). If you are going to slam an individual at least do it straight up. If you really wanted to affect change, write up the issue and submit to SSUSA. I feel confident SSUSA does not want its TD's or umpires affecting decision of a game to their benefit unethically.

Topic: Tournaments
Discussion: Pool games....???

Entry fee not withstanding, the real costs of a tournament to a team is travel/lodging. 5 games at least make it more palpable when talking costs on a per game basis.

The organizations are trying to do their best to maximize play and expenditure. If you don't feel the format is suited to your team, then play local one day tournaments. These are for profit organizations and they are trying to put out a product that creates an environment of growth and repeat customers.

What is the optimum word in this thread, not pool, not tourney, GAMES. More the merrier, more at bats, more better.

Discussion: Best ball in Hot Weather

Alot of people looking and no one is responding. I don't want a "Hot" ball, I just want a ball that holds up in all type of weather. I believe that the NCSSA hit a good ball, SPA, and I heard NSA has a decent one. Need opinions!

Discussion: Best ball in Hot Weather

It is my understanding that the contract for the Stote ball ends at the end of this season for SSUSA. I would like to see the SSUSA use a ball that holds up in hot weather such as the Baden Fire. I don't really have a preference except I am tired of hitting a sock in hot humid temperatures.

I would like to see some comments from the guys in the South and Midwest.

Discussion: Does your team track player statistics?

For those teams that use Clubteams.org, Dave post statistics for teams across the nation. Kind of cool to see a teammate leading in a particular category though numbers are always subjective. Webbie still believes he is 19 for 15 with 32 HRS. ;-)

Clubteams.org - Dave Melosi - 50Caliber has developed this software and it works great.

Discussion: Old stories of bat doctoring

I picked up a bat when playing against _______ Martinez. It was at least 4 inches longer than any bat out there.

Worth Blue Dot - one minute submerged, 30 seconds in the microwave. Seams rise and spread like I do after going to a buffet. You could drop it on concrete and the ball bounce higher than your head.

Discussion: 5 runs or 11 fielders

IMO - Always take the extra player. HR limitations and runs per inning offset the supposed difference in talent. The extra player - 5 man infield and 4 man outfield. Disadvantage to playing a five man, if you don't practice it then your defensive rotations suffer. When in doubt always play the force out at second, pitcher covers. If you can't score 5 an inning then getting an extra run an inning won't matter. Best bet is reduce the M+ team from scoring max and throw cookies with no one on base. Use up the HRS.

Discussion: USSSA STYLE PITCHING IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

Seriously Webbie. Do you know how much batting practice Imlay would want to do if we did that. He would a bat made out of Bamboo, Pine, Oak, Composite, we would never get done.

Discussion: What is or what makes a player a major plus player?

I play Major+ because I am not the smartest guy in the world. It is easier for me to get the best guys I know who will play with me on the same team, make a batting order, and get out of the way. We do not worry about who we play. The ball is the same for both teams, bats are the same for both teams, wind is the same for both teams, no thinking just play. We do not always win, but we win will give you our best. I love teams bringing their "A" game every game. No offense to the other divisions, just too much thinking involved for me. SW Championships featured 4 teams that could win on any given Sunday. Every game a dogfight that required defense and offense management.

Discussion: Where's Dr. Bruce Walker

I love Walk. Played against in KC in the 80's and with him on the Mavericks two decades later. That boy could hit. I am pretty sure he owned the same glove for 40 years, it did not get much use. :-)
